Quite extraordinary! I think I prefer the current ramshackle state of the estate. It's astonishing and somewhat heartening to see how quickly humble flora can bash apart most architecture.


I quite like the current state as well. Something severely fairytale-ish about it, I find. I don't know...it's almost as if the building is trying its best to cling to what grandeur it once had. A bit sad, in that sense.

Hope you are well!

Clever presentation. I'm a longtime connoisseur of graceful decay and I would be gobsmacked to see this in person.

Coilhouse points us to commercial photographer Jeremy Harris' site, where the commercial stuff isn't that interesting, until you find the American Asylums link in his Portfolios, which is amazing. Without lights or Photoshoppery, as Coilhouse points out, he is able to capture the state of decay beautifully and compellingly.

Hi guys! in case you are wondering it really is Cameron Diaz! I saw the house this weekend when i was up filming the new James bond movie and i had heard about Poltalloch and NEEDED to see it! I saw Alexandra stan's message and wondered did the goverment really raise the taxes or were the family just running out of money?
I think that it is really sad!!!
